Watercolor: Angels Weep with Us, 20" x 14"

This is my interpretation of the often-replicated "Angel of Grief" (1894) gravestone sculpture in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome by William Wetmore Story. The gravestone, of course, is grey, but I wanted to capture the life of the angel in my painting. The monument is at the grave of the sculptor's long-time wife, Emelyn Story, who died in 1895 in Rome at the age of 74; he died later the same year. Watercolor, 20" x 14". In a private collection: J. Wilson.
